Just a quickie post: watch this trailer of Were the World Mine, a new independent musical film that’s won several awards at various (mostly gay) film festivals. The movie is about this gay guy in a conservative small town who manages to create a love-pansy, inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which is also prominently featured in the film. This purple love-pansy (of course it had to be purple!) turns practically everyone in town queer. As expected, campy gay hilarity ensues.
Viewing the trailer, I can see that it’s pretty gay alright, but I can definitely feel that it would be such a great fun film to watch. I hope that it would be shown in the Philippines soon (maybe early next year in Robinsons IndieSine?). It’ll be a great respite from all the exploitative local gay indie films of late. I’m also sure it’ll be loads more fun than Manay Po and I’m already predicting that many of the songs in the movie will be LSS-worthy (though not necessarily sing-able if the tons of falsetto in the trailer is to be believed).
